by authorities to help bring this man to justice or to bring him into custody rather. tamerlan and dzhokhar led them on a chase from cambridge after shooting an m.i.t. police officer. the chase led into watertown. 200 rounds were allegedly exchanged in the course of that police exchange, as well as homemade bombs thrown out of the window. that, of course, ultimately led to the death of tamerlan who was 26 years old. the older brother. dzhokhar, escaping into the night and ultimately, he was brought into custody about 26 hours after the pictures were shown to everyone all across the globe. of course, this will continue for much time to come as authorities are looking for answers as to whether or not dzhokhar and tamerlan allegedly acted alone or whether they had help in these bombings. back to you. >> molly line, reporting live for us. thank you, molly. >> that is the key question. did they have help and how will we find out if they did? more on that. >>> the stepson of the man whose boat dzhokhar tsarnaev hid in was speaking out about the chaotic situation and listen to this. >> well, speaking

-old tamerlan tsarnaev, to any, any terrorist organization per se, but the chairman of the house intelligence committee says the older tsarnaev who was killed after the shootout with police, may have become seriously radicalized by islamic extremists when he went to russia last year. here's what the house homeland security chairman had to say today on cnn's state of the union. >> there were reports they had suicide vests on. you don't learn that overnight. i personally believe that this man received training when he was over there, and he radicalized from 2010 to the present, and nine months after he comes back from the chechen region, he pulled off the largest terror attack since 9/11. >> after a dramatic shootout with police that killed his older brother and then eluding police in an intense day-long manhunt, dzhokhar tsarnaev is hospitalized. he's described as being in serious but stable condition. elizabeth cohen is outside the beth israel deaconess medical center where he's being treated. elizabeth, update our viewers on the very latest. >> right, what we know, wolf, is a few more specif
, and also what you would expect him to say, the older brother, tamerlan, was the driving force behind these terrorist attacks. based on what the investigators are getting from dzhokhar, this government sore tells me that the brothers, according to dzhokhar, seem to be self-radicalized, self-starters. they were motivated by the driving train of thought was jihadist thought. and all the governments -- i'm sorry all the political or religious implications that entails the idea being, of course, that they thought they construed islam to be under attack and needed to fight back. that's what they're saying based on initial interviews, preliminary interviews with dzhokhar. >> where he's speaking, communicating by writing, by hand signals, nodding? >> not speaking. communicating through nodding, through writing and other ways of nonverbal. he has that bullet wound to his throat. he can't really speak. he spoke one word in that interview with the magistrate yesterday. >> no. >> he said no. and the magistrate said let the record reflect that i believe the defendant, the suspect, is saying no. h
. what role is the family, tamerlan's wife, what role will they play in furthering this investigation along especially if the mom is giving interviews saying she believes the boys are innocent and they are basically being framed? >> the interviews with all of the family members as well as friends and acquaintances will be an important part to build that mosaic of information to allow us to truly understand these two brothers and what led them to conducting monday's attack. the mother is particularly fascinating because when she became increasingly devout tamerlan gravitated towards her and there is an interesting question about what influence she had over tamerlan and the influence he had over his younger brother. >> and there are reports of the side story that friends of tamerlan think he may have been involved in a triple murder that took place in 2011 that took the life of one of his american friends, someone described as his best friend. what are authorities saying about that investigation because it was a cold case? >> i just spoke a little while ago to the district attorney's of
tamerlan, the older brother, throws a package, a big package our witnesses say, at police. we now know that that was another pressure cooker bomb exactly same device that was deployed against the boston marathon, the device that we have seen the horrific results of. he throws that at police and apparently it functions, it detonates. why don't we have dozens of injured police officers from that explosion in the middle of that shootout? well, apparently what happened as he tossed it, the lid came off. now, the pressure cooker device is based on explosives building up so much pressure that it explodes the container which is supposed to be airtight but when the lid flipped off what you got was a big boom and a big bang and explosives go to the point of least resistance. so these explosives have somewhere to go, which was out into the air without blowing up the container. but i can recall hearing on the police radio last night them screaming over the radio "loud explosion, big explosion here at the scene." and that was probably that main charge. now, when they found tamerlan's body and they
government had asked the united states to investigate the deceased brother, tamerlan tsarnaev back in 2001 and the fbi did, in fact, interview the family and him and look into his background. peter doocy is following that story in washington. what did the fbi do back then? >> heather, the fbi says they spoke to suspect number two, tamerlan tsarnaev two years ago at the request of a foreign government who thought he might have possible extremist ties. the fbi combed through databases looking at phone calls, internet activity, travel history, known associates. they also say they did interview tamerlan and some family members, although at this point we don't know which ones and after all that, they found nothing. at the beginning of 2011, he was clean. no evidence of terror activity, foreign or domestic. so case closed. although the fbi did tell this foreign government who reached out that if any further concerns came up, check back in and they would circle back with this amateur boxer in boston. but this foreign government never did check back in. although we have interesting information to

today. questions continue around tamerlan tsarnaev including what happened during six months abroad and caused his behavior to take a radical turn and did he slip under the fbi's radar. >> somewhere along the line it's fair to say why didn't the fbi follow up on that. fifth case i'm aware of where a person was brought to the attention of the fbi, fbi examined them and felt they were no threat and went to carry out terrorists murders. >> even as investigators continue their work, a funeral will be held this hour for one of the victims of the bombing, 29-year-old krystle campbell. massachusetts governor deval patrick will attend and at 2:50 p.m. eastern time bells across boston will ring to mark one week since those twin bombs went off just feet from the marathon's finish line changing so many lives in this that incident. joining me from washington, pete williams. let's talk about dzhokhar tsarnaev. he isn't talking yet but he's communicating. what more do we know about that and let's also talk about the issue of whether or not charges are coming today. >> okay. in terms of his commun
that must have been for him. then tamerlan the older brother, 26 years old in this family that we are learning a lot about this morning, the 26-year-old who is now dead was -- had bullet wound in the shootout with the police after he and his brother threw explosives out of their moving car. unfortunately they could not save him at the hospital in order to get nor or ou get more out of him. he he had shrapnel in his body. which leads everybody to believe he was going to set off another bomb in this nightmare that has gripped this whole area of boston and cambridge and watertown, wonderful towns in great state of massachusetts that have been rocked in a way they have never experienced before. this it is a very difficult day and he is still at large, so we will continue with our breaking news coverage of this story. joined now by jon scott and jenna lee as well. jon: what an incredible 18 hours it has been, martha. just since 5:00pm eastern time yesterday when the police released the pictures, the fbi released these pictures, to you will lee not these pictures, b but -- released thes

from security cameras we saw brothers tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev allegedly on the way to place the bombs. and then the gripping 28-hour manhunt. there was an ambush that left a young police officer dead. and a gun battle that left a transit police officer badly wounded and ended the life of tamerlan tsarnaev. dzhokhar tsarnaev, his younger brother, was lost spotted in this infrared photo hiding inside a boat as the drag net closed in around him. his f.b.i. wanted poster now marked captured is the image that puts to a close the first chapter in the story of the boston marathon bombing. and so the next chapter opens with nothing but questions. questions posed by the president himself. >> why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and our country resort to such violence? how did they plan and carry out these attacks? and did they receive any help? the families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers. >> reporter: answers that the full force of u.s. law enforcement and intelligence agencies are racing to learn. was there foreign help or trainin

. >> reporter: authorities believe that his older brother tamerlan killed in a gun battle early friday morning while wearing explosives strapped to his chest may have instigated the plot and persuaded dzhokhar to join him in the bloody attacks. >> i am extremely lucky that i'm not at a funeral this morning for one of my officers. >> reporter: but agents are puzzled by what motivated the tsarnaevs. they were raised in the u.s., lived in the same house and seemed to fit in. they attended this cambridge mosque, but a spokeswoman says they raised no red flags. >> in their visits, they never exhibited any violent behavior, sentiments. otherwise, they would have been immediately reported to the fbi. >> reporter: but should the fbi have been watching more closely? in 2011, russian intelligence concerned about the threat of chechnyan terrorism asked the fbi to investigate tamerlan based on information he was a follower of radical islam according to an fbi statement. the fbi said it checked databases, interviewed tamerlan and family members but, quote, did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or f
chechnya were raised in the u.s. but in recent years the older brother, tamerlan's, islamic faith had become stricter. he'd stopped smoking and drinking and given up boxing. his uncle said he noticed those changes several years ago and spoke to a family friend. >> last time i spoke with tamerlan, 2009, and i was shocked when i heard his words. his phrases. it wasn't devotion. it was something as it's called been radicalized. he said there is someone who brainwashed him, some newly convert to islam. >> 2011 the russian government did ask the fbi to investigate tamerlan. the fbi says it checked data bases, interviewed tamerlan and family members but, quote, did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign. on sunday some lawmakers said the fbi may have dropped the ball. >> anwr alaki. now this case with the older brother. this is at least the fifth case i'm aware of where the fbi has failed to stop someone who ultimately became a terrorist murderer. >> then in 2012 camm etamerlan traveled to dagestan where his mother was from and both parents live now. he stayed there for six mo
was known about the older suspect who is now dead, tamerlan tsarnaev, and this trip ta hat he took to rusa last year. law makes want to know why is it that tamerlan tsarnaev was able to make this trip in the first place. should he have been stopped before he went overseas? when overseas what did he do? what was he up to when he was over there? some of this is stemming from some of the conflicting stories, quite frankly, chris, from federal officials over tamerlan tsarnaev's status. senator lindsey graham, republican from south carolina, told reporters yesterday that tamerlan was on a no-fly list, that he was on some sort of terror watch list a federal law enforcement official has told cnn that is not the case. and senator charles grassley, graham's republican colleague in the senate, asked secretary janet napolitano from the department of homeland security about the discrepancy earlier this morning. here's bit of that exchange. >> was your department aware of his travels to russia, and if you weren't, the reason? >> the travel in 2012 that you're referring to? yes, the system pinged when h
